"I am such a, how you say, fan," enthuses UMG Central Europe President/CEO Frank Briegmann to country megastar Shania Twain during a "UMG Inside" confab at Berlin's Mercedes-Benz Arena. "Frequently I am singing to myself, 'Man! I feel like ein European music executive mit sector-leading marketshare.' Now, please to enjoy complimentary sauerbraten und dunkelweiss." Meanwhile, UMG Germany's Dirk Baur wondered what it would be like to have long, lustrous hair like Shania's.

The event featured Briegmann's Q&A with ABBA's legendary Benny Andersson about his solo album, as well as performances by Lang Lang, Gregory Porter, Bill Murray and others. One musical highlight, captured below, was Briegmann's soulfully Teutonic rendition of "The Pie Chart Song."
